The San Juan's 14,000 foot peaks are marked with worn paths and full summit registers, leaving its lesser known “13ers" ripe for the picking. Just as rugged as its slightly taller neighbors, Phoenix Peak's massive scree fields can destroy a typical light hiker. Oboz steps up to the altitude hazed challenge with 1.6mm leather overlays, ballistics mesh, and a molded rubber toe counter. Throw in a BDry waterproof/breathable lining, and the Phoenix is the ideal peak-bagging tool.
O FIT Insole™:
Oboz developed their proprietary insole, and it is what they’re known for. Molded to match the specific shape and construction of every pair they make, this purpose-designed technology delivers the kind of fit, feel and performance that’s unmatched in the industry.
There’s no denying feet sweat and trails can get muddy. There’s also no denying the ability of the proprietary waterproofing system developed by Oboz, B-DRY, that lets sweat escape while keeping moisture out.
Granite Peak Midsole:
Great for day hiking, but burly enough for a multi-day backpacking trip. Featuring a TPU Chassis boosts stability and prevents stone bruising without inhibiting flex. Single-density EVA provides cushioning and comfort.
Granite Peak Outsole:
Their quintessential hiking outsole built to be supportive and protective. If you’re tired of feeling rocks and roots underfoot look no further. The map molded in the bottom of the outsole features Granite Peak, the tallest peak in Montana.
